St. Joseph in life and work of Blessed Alphonse Marie


“Among the saints, who beseech for us the true confidence in the Blessed Virgin,

is especially St. Joseph, the greatest servant of Mary.”

(Blessed Alphonse Marie Eppinger)


On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of St. Joseph’s proclamation as patron of the Universal Church, we would like to introduce the veneration and relationship of Blessed Alphonse Marie to St. Joseph.

Blessed Alphonse Marie had a sincere relationship to St. Joseph. She harbored great respect and trust toward him throughout her whole life. She chose him for main patron of the Congregation and awarded him with several interesting titles.
